In this laugh-filled, disruptive and very inspiring business-savvy episode, the lads talk with B Corp's biggest UK fan, Paul Hargreaves. If you don't know what B Corp is, you'll definitely want to listen!
Paul’s something of a pioneer in the world of purpose-driven business, having started with a vision: to put people before profit.
He's also written a popular and best-selling book all about it.
He's one of the founding members of the B Corporation certification initiative, which has origins in the US. He was inspired to get involved through the boss at high-end frozen food supplier, Cook.
In this conversation, you’ll hear how Paul came from the struggling north, worked his way up through business doing ‘normal’ jobs and rubbing shoulders with 'normal' people. You’ll also hear how he eventually took a trip to Africa that changed his perspective, and ultimately his life!
There’s a lot to learn in this episode, and Paul isn’t afraid to give his views on subjects as diverse as the demise of capitalism, the danger of hiring the wrong kind of business coach, the value of ex prisoners, and how to have success in selling.
But it’s not all seriousness. You’ll laugh along as you hear tales of river-sodden vehicles and backwards skiing.
